BBC Breakfast star Carol Kirkwood was forced to apologise for snubbing Wales in one of her tweets.

The BBC weather expert took to Twitter earlier this week to update fans on the latest weather conditions just minutes before going on air.

Carol is widely known as a national treasure in the broadcasting world, but even TV legends like her are prone to making mistakes from time to time.

The presenter was keen to inform viewers on pollen levels across the country on Tuesday (June 28), an important update for those who suffer from hay fever in the summer months.

She tweeted: "Pollen levels today across England are mostly very high, high in Northwest England and moderate in Southwest England. For Scotland and Northern Ireland they are moderate @BBC Breakfast xxx"

However, she left her Welsh viewers gutted as she failed to mention the pollen conditions in Wales, leaving one fan to claim she'd forgotten about the nation.

One disappointed fan wrote: "Carol, what about [Welsh flag emoji], i know everyone thinks we are part of England, but i thought you would have remembered us" before adding a crying emoji.

Another said: "What about Wales Carol? You missed us out. Most people do but we are used to it now!"

Carol was quick to apologise to the viewer, explaining she made the tweet "quickly", right before she went on air.

She replied: "Noooo I AM SO SORRY. Dictated that tweet just before going on air, so did it quickly. Sending another right now. Huge apologies x"

She then made a point of referencing Wales in a separate tweet.
